BACKGROUND Several models can predict the risk of prostate cancer (PCa) on biopsy. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT) and European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer (ERSPC) risk calculators in detecting PCa in a contemporary screened cohort. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS We analyzed prebiopsy characteristics of 525 consecutive screened patients submitted to biopsy, as required by the risk calculators, in one European… CONTINUE READING
